Autumn, a qquestion about step 3 part 2.
It says "The camera will sound a beeping sound "
So, does the Phantom need to be on to make the sound?
If so, when does it need to be turned on?
and if so, must the controller be updated at the same time as the Phantom?
Meaning directly after the Phantom update without turning off the Phantom.
Thanks

Hi Autumn,
I mistakenly upgraded  the RC when the aircraft had not yet been upgraded. Now the app shows that i need to upgrade the aircraft,camera and battery (shown below). When i follow the process of loading the .bin file on the SD card and inserting into the camera, all i get are the flashing green light on the gimbal and three beeps D--DD.
1. Does it matter that i updated the RC first
2. Why am i not able to update the aircraft, camera and gimbal?

Hey my good man, Please start yourself a new thread, or you may never get a reply. ;-)
Bringing up these ancient threads, is just poor forum etiquette. Sort of Looked "down-upon", as the thread shrinks slowly back into eternity.

You also now have the opportunity of watching some key instructional videos for your bird, on upgrading the firmware.

Yes the Phantom must be on, during the firmware udate. Once you have placed the latest firmware bin fine in the micro sd card root, pace it back in the drone gimbal, and turn it on. The update will take a while so, you may want to leave the room, or stick the drone in a closet, the beeping can be rather annoying and loud as well. ;-) once the updated firmware has completed its task, you can remove the sd    card, place it back in the computer and see that it was in fact a  "success". Remove the created files and leave the bin file on the card, now you can put it back in the gimbal and replace the battery with another, to update. The LED diodes change light pattern when the battery updates. Batteries update very quickly.

The radio controller is not turned on during the Phantom update.

& Depending on your firmware version, you may be able to udate the controller right from the app.
The radio controller is not dependant on the Phantom during firmware updates.
Yet, you can also update the controller right from the Phantom if you use the included cable, to pair them together. With the bin file still on the micro sd card, & placed back in the drone gimbal. Turn on the Phantom First, then the radio controller, in that case. And let the update complete.
